Peregrine 2017 Pinot Noir
Winery : Peregrine
TROPHY Champion Organic Red Wine, 2019 NZ Wine of the Year Awards
Peregrine was established in 1998. As well as the original Gibbston site, with its famed building resembling a soaring peregrine, there are now top sites in Bendigo and Pisa to supply fruit.
Bold, dark and sleek in this super vintage. A long and benign autumn allowed for extended ripeness and berries with great fruit concentration. There's a much higher portion of Bendigo fruit in 2017 (87%), which accounts for the extra oomph in Peregrine's characteristically fleshy and sumptuous style. Dark cherry fruits and mulberry with dark chocolate. It is quite a mouthful but classically balanced too.
